    Kyle bought a 10 imported from Canada. Dan has sold several of his and shipped them overseas. They are the 2 best sources here for that information.

    Thanks. Talked to someone about this. I don't think a Canadian export will be a problem at all. As i understand it the only difference is the dash cluster and the daytime running lights. I believe the lights are a Canadian requirement.

    DRL's have been a requirement on vehicles sold in Canada since 1990. Dealerships in the States can easily turn them off. You are correct with the gauges; KMH is large font, MPH is small font and the temperature gauges are in Celsius. There should be no problem importing a vehicle from Canada, people import/export every day.
